Because a 2-minute trailer wasn’t good enough, Warner Bros. has released a 4-minute extended trailer for McG’s “Terminator Salvation”, starring Christian Bale as John Connor and some Aussie guy as some half-human, half-metal dude. You know, that old thing. Also, two clips from the movie, one featuring Moon Bloodgood taking on some hillbillies, and the other featuring John Connor in a factory for Terminators with his dad, Kyle Reese. Only his dad is younger than him and has no idea the dude next to him is his son. Yeah, it’s complicated that way.
Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
Starring Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood, Bryce Dallas Howard, Common, Jane Alexander, Helena Bonham Carter, and Jadagrace. Directed by McG (“Charlie’s Angels”).
